In the city I am from: Bogotá, there was no space for my passion so I decided to come to the United States to fulfill my dream of becoming a jeweler. As a young student I believed that if there was no space for what I believed in, then I had to create it. If I did there would be someone to believe in me. At RISD, I have found beautiful people that not only share my interests in jewelry and art making but that complete my life. There is always a positive reception for different opinions but also strong convictions of people’s own philosophy. I think that following your dreams inspires others by showing that it is possible to do what you love. Keeping yourself positive will always make a big difference.
